6:07am
operations of the federal government. the federal cliff refers to a program of tax hikes and government spending cuts that will be triggered in the new year unless lawmakers come to some sort of agreement to stop them. many have predicted another recession if the u.s. heads over that so-called fiscal cliff. in the meantime the government is selling more of its shares in aig. the government launched a $182 billion bailout of the major insurer back in 2008. aig says the treasury department is selling $18 billion worth of its common shares to institutional investors. aig received the biggest of the wall street bailout packages. get ready to hear a lot of ads asking questions like are you falling asleep after dinner? the advertising claims are that you could have low t. the hittest big marketing push by the nation's drug companies

6:30am
the west this morning. noon sunny and 73. we are looking at temperatures this morning which are in the 50s in many areas north and west, thanks to the clear size overhead. got a little bit of a breeze out of the northwest. does it feel nice with 50 in cumberland, 66 in annapolis, and 61 going up into the mid and upper 70s, a great start to the week. weatherwise i wish i could say the same for traffic but don't shoot the messenger. here's monika samtani. you know, on the southbound side of the bw parkway, monday morning has not been so great for a lot of commuters, that is because we had a seven vehicle pile up i was talking to park police about it and they said people follow too closely and go too fast early in the morning. if you are heading southbound look at the delay from the
6:31am
beltway past route 410. i'm going to show what you it looks like from our sky 9. look at that delay solid at 6:30 in the morning, i'm so sorry, i think you are going to be late. let's go become over to our maps. normal slow stuff and beyond that toward route 50, we'll take a live allegiance at the allegiance bridge here. things look great across the river. back at 6:43. redskins fans were expecting a lot from rg iii in this nfl debut. >> an outstanding debut for the redskins. the redskins were in new orleans, a tough place to play, facing the saints.
6:32am
rg iii threw a pair of touchdown passes, including this 88-yard touchdown play hooking up with pierre. redskins upset mightily, the saints 40-32. after the game rg iii said the day could have gone even better. >> we could have scored a few points but nothing is ever perfect. you know there are some passes i wish i had become. there are some plays i wish i had back. falling on a keep are, you know all those things. but i'm not going to be debby downer. we did a good job, we won the game. >> that is the bottom line, they won the game. notice rg iii was so exited to talk with reporters he didn't even shower first and still had the ball in his hands. >> good call. kristen fisher is live in dupont circle getting reactions
6:33am
from skins fans, what are you hearing? >> reporter: they are elated. redskins fans could not be happier with rg iii's headline performance. the washington post headline reads a brazil yont beginning. griffin passes for 320 yards, -- a brilliant beginning. griffin passes for 320 yards. i think that will be the picture everybody remembers this morning. inside, front page of the sports section, right from the start, look at that big smile on his face. i think that says it all. then finally the front page of usa today welcome to the nfl, and they choose rg iii for the big center picture. so he is the talk of the nfl this morning. he is certainly the talk of those in washington.
6:34am
i caught up with one big redskins fan right as he was about to get on the metro. >> reporter: you watched the game yesterday. what did you think of rg iii. >> spectacular, did everything expected, better than a rookie you would think could ever do. great to watch. >> reporter: think it is the beginning of a new era in redskins football? >> we sure hope so. >> reporter: about time right? i don't definitely. 20 years is long enough. >> i think everybody was comfortable with the game plan we had coming in about a lot of things we had been shown in the preseason. i think everybody executed it to a t. >> >> we went out there and executed our game plan. offense put up 40 points. anytime the offense puts up 40 points and hold the ball as long as they did, it is our responsibility as the defense to make sure we seal the victory. >> reporter: now in my opinion the real reason the redskins
6:35am
won, not rg iii, it is my seven-month-old golden doodle. she is wearing her very first redskins jersey. it is kind of a good luck charm. she watched the whole game, i think we are going to have to keep it on her every redskins game for the rest of the season. what do y'all think? >> home and away jerseys and those pink ones they throw on ladies every now and again. >> thanks kristen. the ravens hosting cincinnati, kickoff at 7:00. the ravens went 12-4 last season and they lost to the patriots. we could learn later on today when it was a tornado that hit northern virginia over the weekend. several houses are condemned,
